08 October 2019: A Tribute to Candy Lozier aka Candy L, Part II

A Last Sunset: A Celebration of Candy Lozier, Volume I

 In September 2019, the music world lost a true force.

Candy Lozier (Candy L) was a composer, performer, label founder, fan, advisor, supporter, confidant, collaborator, and all-around cheerleader for the music and artists she loved. She founded the netlabel Studio4632.com and shepherded the release of over 200 albums spanning the range of ambient, experimental, and neo-classical electronic music (or whatever else her friends and artists were up to.)

This compilation (which will be at least 2 volumes) is a celebration by her friends, artists, collaborators, supporters, and listeners of her life, her work, and her never-ending support.

It's appropriate to begin this collection with one of her favorite pieces, and one of Cousin Silas' most played tracks - "Song For Candy." The collection will end with a track by Cousin Silas and Candy from material from their last (still unreleased) collaboration sessions. It is the final collaboration.

Any funds received from these memorial albums will be forwarded to Candy's sister, Jeannine, to donate in Candy's name to an appropriate cause.

From Jeannine: "... she was a gem, she was 63 years old. She loved music ever since she was a kid. She was also a gifted artist. She was very multi talented, creative, intelligent, and clever. Always a hard worker. Personally, she was kind, generous, a lot of fun, interesting. She'd give you the shirt off your back. She was my BFF and I miss her so much".

The stunning outpouring and diversity of these tracks is a tribute to Candy's life, her vision, and its importance to so many of us. These first three hours are just a beginning of keeping the music and that vision alive.
